St Thomas Willoughby Catholic School, Coding Courses, Term 1, 2020

For St Thomas Willoughby Catholic School Students Only

Weekly Coding Courses for Y2 – Y6 Students


The Coding Fundamentals, Intermediate coding course consists of four levels and 25 sophisticated software projects, which students develop using block-based programming environment Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab). During this course students will learn and apply more complex computer science concepts such as booleans, recursive algorithms and lists. Students will also be introduced to the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI), user interface design and user input validation. Students will be given an opportunity to define and develop their own projects independently with a minimal guidance. The benefit of this approach is that students are able to accomplish a number of projects themselves, hence they understand the subject matter more deeply.
